1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need help with couch disaster on: September 19, 2008 08:07:04 PM
Hi all,
DH and I "inherited" a dual reclining sofa from my parents.  Long story short DH traded work with a friend who has an upholstery business to get the couch recovered.  He did a great job, but I picked the WRONG fabric.  I went with a medium blue denim thinking it would go with everything and be easy care.  However, I thought the fabric would look more like a pair of worn jeans.  Instead you can't really tell it's denim, and I have this ugly country blue couch that clashes with everything, and I hate it.  I wanted a more shabby, worn denim look.  So . . . my question is, is there anyway to distress the fabric without totally ruining it? The couch cushions can be removed, but that's it.  I did take a sanding block to the underside of the middle cushion this afternoon and rubbed it in circles.  I figured if I ruined it, I could turn the cushion over.  Any suggestions?
